Top 5 Celebrity Lightning Rods for Lawsuits

By George Khoury, Esq. | Last updated on

For those lawyers seeking out high profile cases, catching a case against a celebrity can potentially be more lucrative than representing one.

While there are myriad ways to market to this incredibly small pool of potential clients, it's not an impossible feat, particularly as some celebrities seem to repeatedly expose themselves to tort and contract liability. Below you can read about five such celebrities, presented in no significant order, that can be aptly called lightning rods for lawsuits.

1. Donald Trump

President Trump may be known for claiming to have the biggest everything all the time, but among the list here, it probably isn't an exaggeration that he has the biggest list of lawsuits against him. Even before he was elected president and got listed on cases related to his political actions, he'd been sued countless times.

2. Katt Williams

The funny man has a reputation for ending up in court for his aggressive conduct. Most recently, he was sued for throwing a salt shaker at a restaurant employee. That employee had to get 10 stitches.

3. Jay-Z and Beyonce

Jay-Z has undoubtedly built an empire around him. And with that, he has been the target of repeated lawsuits. Not to mention, he and Beyonce are married, and her empire attracts enough legal claims to eclipse his. Most married couples have him and hers towels, not him and hers lawsuits.

4. J Lo

Jennifer Lopez has been sued for quite a bit, from business deals gone wrong, to her allegedly bad dog's behavior while traveling. People must secretly not like Jenny from the block ... after all, she was sued after her promotion of hoverboards failed to pay off.

5. The Kardashians

The reality star starlets get sued ,like, so frequently for fashion industry antics and the type of conduct that has cemented their fame as reality TV stars.

Did we miss your favorite lightning rod for celebrity lawsuits? To be fair, there were plenty of runners up, including Justin Bieber, the Olsen Twins, Britney Spears, and of course we can't forget to mention Lindsay Lohan.
